    ^ He's doing an IDW chest as well. They designed different shoulder bits that make for a more solid canopy.

    Anyway... Regarding Nightbeat, I really wish they would have made new arms/shoulders. Shame that the arms have all those pins instead of ball joints... because then they could have redesigned them so that the forearms sport headlights like the G1 incarnation.

    I think we're looking at the trees here and not the forest.

    Imagine if this was a kit designed to make CW Prime look like ROTF Prime. It doesn't matter who measured what it is still taking from an official design that exists via Hasbro et al channels.

    Given how popular that iteration of Prime is (Orion was based on the same) it's impossible to say without certainty that two entities wouldn't think of the same idea.

    I'm also not that great of a photographer. :eek: 

    But, yes, Shapeways materials tend to look much better in person than they do in photos.

    What a strange coincidence (!)

    Yeah i'm not buying anything from this company like it seems that they're ripping you off and they can't even be bothered to at least paint to differentiate themselves. (Also I get the feeling they have lower quality plastics)

    Why wouldn't it?? Did I miss something? I think the set looks great and plan on getting a few.

    You know a black version of this could easily turn Menasor into Nemesis Prime.

    I do have to ask, because this is the ONLY reason I was hesitating on Jon's set... Do we know if (like the Nightbeat) this can transform without removing the chest panel?
    It looks like it should be able to, but I'm uncertain?

    I doubt it can, unless the chest folds up into some kind of roof or wind vain for alt mode.

    I think they confirmed that the chest does fold up and can be transformed without removal.

    Still quite an improvement, but if they'd given him some new feet and forearms, it would be even better

    It doesn't look the greatest in vehicle mode but it can transform and I believe the chest collapses a bit and slides onto the roof of vehicle mode

    IF this can stay on him, or form some sort of trailer/rear-end in vehicle mode, then it would be a must buy for me, and Combiner Wars Optimus Prime!
